THE STORY:

I am going to spend my Summer volunteering in Peru, exchanging knowledge, passion, and friendship with smart, talented women. Read more about the project here: http://www.awamaki.org.

From the Awamaki website:

Awamaki is a Peruvian non-profit working with impoverished Quechua women weavers to improve their skills and increase their access to market, thereby revitalizing an endangered weaving tradition while affording Quechua women with a reliable source of income.

Based in Ollantaytambo in the Sacred Valley of Peru, Awamaki runs both a fair trade textiles initiative and a sustainable tourism program, harnessing local tourism and the international marketability of Andean textiles to find a market for this craft in a modernizing global economy."
